"Heh...heh. Call me a kid one more time."

0 · 165 views · located in The Interactive Dream Dimension

a character in “Lucid Dreamers: Revolution”, as played by RacoonMoon()

Description

Name: Dodge Hanson
Age: 16
Role: Freedom Fighter
Appearance: Image
Dodge is 5"7' tall and has a very lean build. He has long spiky hair that hangs down into his face or is half-tucked into his ever present tan beanie. He also has a cape that he wears around the camp but whenever he's in town he balls it up to create a knapsack.

Weapons: Dodge carries a special type of knife called a Scroll knife within his sleeve most of the time. Basically this knife allows him holster two knives in one sheath.
His other weapon is a hunting bow that he is not very skilled with.

Skills, Abilities, and Hobbies: Because of his training with his parents, Dodge is a skilled cook and tailor. He is also a quick thinker and a phenomenal actor, both skills that help him do his job without being caught Besides that he is skilled with his knife.
Personality: (Bah, always my least favorite part of creating a character) Dodge is a strong believer in the concept of Carpe Diem and tries to live out to this philosophy. Even though he's been outcast by everyone but Tink he doesn't let it bother him. In fact when he is alone he often talks to himself just to pass the time. He enjoys the sound of his own voice. Dodge considers himself a heavy opportunist and often goes into a situation before he knows everything about it. Normally Dodge is kind, calm, intelligent but after he is severely provoked he changes completely. He becomes militant, rude and very opinionated. Despite his eccentrics Dodge can become very serious when he so desires. The desire seldom comes but it's there for when he needs it.

History: Dodge grew up inside of Getsus' Paradise with a rather poor family. His father worked as a cook inside Getsus' castle and his mother worked as a tailor in the town. From an early age he couldn't have been less interested in either vocation. Nonetheless each parent tried to pass their skills on the notion that he could succeed both of them.
When defining moment happened when he was 13 years old working with his father. They were out in the marketplace gathering supplies for the kitchen when the freedom fighters launched a raid. His father quickly ran to hide but Dodge saw this as his chance to finally get away. When he noticed the freedom fighters taking crates, barrels and the likes, he emptied one and hid inside. The freedom fighters, along with Dodge, took their winnings back to camp.
At first the freedom fighters tried to turn Dodge back because they didn't see how they the mere 13 year old could be of much use to them. They told him to return when he was older and then he could really make a difference. Dodge convinced them that if he could stay here then he could be a mole from inside of the city. He explained to them that his lifestyle allowed him to traverse almost entire empire on a weekly basis. In short he could be their mole. Despite allowing Dodge to stay, he was not well received into the freedom fighters. Many considered him lazy because of how he had hitchhiked his way into the Freedom Fighters while others had braved the dangers of walking there. In his attempt to win people's favor he started working in the kitchens and doing whatever sewing he could while he was there. it won some of the women over but the men just started considering him very feminine. He distanced himself from the freedom fighters so that when he came he would come long enough to deposit his finding and be gone the next day. When Tinkerton came Dodge took the fairy under his wing so to speak. Tink in his own way showed Dodge not to care what others thought of him.

So begins...

After Dodge finished his greeting with Axe, he turned back around to find that Tink was gone. Dodge scrunched his eyes to see if the fairy had just hidden behind something but he was gone. Dodge let out a sigh and turned around to finish his trip.
"Honestly Tink. It's not like I'm here often. You could at least have the courtesy to meet me while I am." he said to himself as he walked into the tent. Actually Tink usually showed that much courtesy, even when it wasn't necessary. I wonder what's changed since I last was here. He placed his kills on the makeshift table and then left the tent with no thanks.

Once outside the tent, dodge raised his arms to his head and looked to the sky.
"If it's midday right now, I'll give Axe my report in an hour or so. Head back into town in the morning. But first to find Tink." His schedule made up, Dodge from where he stood to try and catch a glimpse of the fairy in one of his usual hangouts.
"Time to take this search on the road. " he said when his current vantage point yielded no results. He decided that the best place to look would probably be his tent.
"Hey Tink you in-" He called as he pulled open the flaps to Tink's tent. "Here." he finished feebly. Sitting in the middle of the tent was Lust beside another girl that he could recognize. She's wearing the most peculiar outfit he speculated. Realizing that he still standing awkwardly in the doorway, he walked in and let it seal behind him. Lust seemed to busy helping the girl but Dodge also had things he wanted to accomplish.
"Lust. Do you know where Tink is? Tinkerton Puck." Dodge said. He still found it peculiar that these women were here and Tink wasn't but Dodge didn't show it.

Cassidy Pyro SaintClaire


Cassidy still lay unconscious. Regaining her energy.


Lust Asami Curtis

Lust was propped on the table. Her legs crossed and dangling off the side of it. She was reading a book on Alchemy. She looked up at to him. "Oh good afternoon Dodge..." She greeted him "Tink said something about taking his Axe illusion for a walk to help the other campers regain there hope for the upcoming battle." She told him. "He allowed me to use his tent for the young lass who was unconscious." She informed him knowing he was most likely curious of her sudden appearance in someone elses tent.

Axe illusion Dodge wondered. So when he talked with Axe earlier was that the real Axe or Tink's illusion? Come to think of it Tink was nearby when that happened doing seemingly nothing. Dodge gave a small chuckle that he had not realized it sooner. The fairy was certainly coming along with his illusions if he was now fooling all of the camp with them. Well most of the camp he thought looking up to Lust. She had gone back to her reading and Dodge surely could have gone back out to search for Tink but the unconscious girl intrigued him. He went over and knelt opposite Lust.
"So who is she?" Dodge asked gesturing down at the girl.

Lust Asami Curtis


Lust stopped reading her book and looked at Dodge putting a bookmark in the book before she closed it and set it aside. "A strong and agile warrior. She took on a nightmare alone and caused it to run off with it's tail between it's legs. Though the ordeal proved to much and she soon lost consciousness. I tell you Dodge I have never seen anything like it. Turning your body to flames is something I never thought possible even in this realm." She told him. "Many have spread word of the chosen ones awakening and I believe she is Fire. She came with four other companions. I believe Conner is leading them though the rest seem reluctant to follow his will." She chuckles. "Poor boy." She sighs. "He'll learn however." She stated matter of factly and then looked at Dodge. "With this being said your sudden appearance is quite unusual now a days. It's good to see you again. Whats the occasion?" She asked him.

Kya


"Almost there....." Kya felt like she couldn't feel her ankles anymore, but she kept on going. The wooden wall was just up ahead. With one last stride, she blew a gust of wind as hard as she could, that she flew over the wall. She felt as though she was getting used to her wind powers now, and she was capable of producing stronger blasts of air. As soon as her feet touched the ground of the camp, she made as much attention as she possibly could.

"I NEED MEDICAL ATTENTION!!!" she yelled, hoping the lady from before would hear her. Not waiting for an answer, she looked inside the tents. Luckily, Lust was in the first tent she searched.

"Miss, i'm sorry to bother you, but we have an emergency!" Kya helped Ancel on to one of the unoccupied beds in the tent. Quickly glancing behind her, Kya could see Cassidy on another one of the beds. Something wasn't right here.

"He's hurt," Kya said, frantically ripping the yellow ribbon from off of his chest. The blatant red stains were quite petrifying. "He got attacked in the woods by someone, or something....I got there to find someone tending to his wounds, but the help wasn't enough....he's losing blood fast...please, won't you help him? Unfortunately i can't stay here, i have to tell the others something important..." Before exiting the tent, Kya placed Ancel's photograph right by the edge of the bed. She looked back at him one last time, and quickly made her way to the center of the camp.

"FREEDOM FIGHTERS! PLEASE HEED MY WORDS! I SPEAK OF EVENTS THAT HAVE HAPPENED AND THAT MAY AID TO YOUR PURSUING IN THE EVIL MAN WHO HAS CONQUERED THIS WORLD!!!"
Some of the creatures actually stopped and stared. It felt weird drawing so much attention to herself, but Kya knew it was necessary just in case the soldiers or the strange thing that attacked Ancel decided to raid the village.
"Just a while ago, i met a man in the woods and decided to travel with him. We talked, and when we parted our seperate ways, i heard a gunshot from behind me. I investigated, and found a whole troop of the enemy's soldiers. They have strategically set up a blockade that has seperated this part of the woods from the other. They hide on the side of the woods and in the middle of the wall, like it is a fort." Kya could see some faces turn white. Other faces looked bewildered, and others determined. She kept her voice firm as she continued to speak. "And unfortunately, they have discovered the technology to make this blockade invisible, that way, victims aren't aware of their prescence. I don't know how many people they've slaughtered, but no matter how many they've affected, the situation is critical. I know this sounds ludicrous, but i swear, i've seen it with my own eyes, and if you believe me, i can prove it. Believe it or not, there are also strange attackers lurking in the woods. They have already pursued my friend. I think that these soldiers in the woods must be hiding something, because if they don't get their prey, these strange attackers do. Furthermore, although i am not the leader here, i think that this blockade is crucial if we want to continue further into the dimension. I wish to speak to someone in charge about this."
Kya stood tall and strong on the ground, glancing around waiting for someone to speak.

The girl from before had spoke, but no one was speaking. Ruya finally spoke up, as loud as she could.

"...The strange attackers from the shadows are approaching us." She said, finally. Some of the people around her turned. "...Because I have lead them here," She continued, ignoring the looks she was getting. "...Unfortunately I am unable to fight them off on my own. I sought the Freedom Fighters, which apparently you are, but without leadership..." She paused. "...I might've lead those creatures here." Ruya said, gripping her bow. "...But I have a plan to defeat them. To do that... I need the help of everyone here. They'll surround us. They'll try to make us give into fear." She paused, her ears drooping. She realized how exhausted she was from just listening and running for the entire day. She'd barely taken any shots... And so can I really say I can defeat them...? She wondered. Yes... I can. "Those creatures, they retreat when they're wounded. They gather allies and wait in the shadows for people to separate. They are so quiet I can't hear them... so quick I can barely out run them. But if we had some skilled melee fighters backed up by ranged fighters..." She frowned slightly. "Two small groups who attack the shadows that we lure into our presence..." She looked around. "It's possible not only to kill them... but perhaps to capture them. Back in Ghestus' Paradise, I've only heard of these things. I hear they have an allergy to the rays of the sun. It may be possible to kill them with something sun-kissed...? We should experiment." Ruya paused, looking up at the girl. "...The fort that you saw in the forest must come second to securing the base, shouldn't it? Especially if we risk being attacked every time we leave... Unless..." Ruya crossed her arms, thoughtful. "...You are insinuating that the two are the same enemy-- that the men in fort are sided with our shadowy attackers...?"

Dodge Hanson
Dodge shrugged. " No reason really. I suppose that I have to come back every now and then, if only to remind myself I'm a freedom fighter. Besides Tink needs to be around someone his own age. Speaking of which." Dodge got up from where he kneeled and prepared to go.

He turned to the door when it abruptly flew open. In came a girl carrying a boy who lay unconscious in her arms.
"Miss, i'm sorry to bother you, but we have an emergency!" she said and without waiting for an answer placed him onto one of the beds. "That's my bed." Dodge said, succumbing to the selfish thought. He was about to ask about it but she beat him to it.

"He's hurt," The girl said, frantically ripping a yellow ribbon from off the boy's chest. Dodge grimaced at the blood that was now revealed. "He got attacked in the woods by someone, or something....I got there to find someone tending to his wounds, but the help wasn't enough....he's losing blood fast...please, won't you help him? Unfortunately I can't stay here, I have to tell the others something important..."

It seemed rather strange that she would drop him here and then rush off. It was obvious from her voice that she cared for him a lot and wouldn't leave unless something was very important. He almost wanted to go and see what it was but thought he would be more useful here. He watched the door for a moment before going to Lust and asking what he could do to help.

Tinkerton Puck
Tink's firework stopped mid-explosion as he heard the yelling from outside. He had found that if he just left the reality with a task it would continue with that while he did other things. He was contenting himself with making these fireworks as he lay on his back. Though Axe was putting on the great semblance of avidly reviewing these plans, Tink had no idea if anything was -or even could be- going on inside his head.

Tink let the firework fade and flew over to the tent entrance to inspect what was going on outside. The reality got up behind him but with a wave of his hand Tink sat him back down. Tink opened his door and almost flew straight into a large mass of fur. Tink back-tracked quickly and looked up at the bear that was now scowling at him. Tink apologized and with a grunt the bear turned back to the person speaking. Tink flew up until he could hover above their heads and listen to the speakers.

"-to make this blockade invisible, that way, victims aren't aware of their prescence. I don't know how many people they've slaughtered, but no matter how many they've affected, the situation is critical. I know this sounds ludicrous, but i swear, I've seen it with my own eyes, and if you believe me, i can prove it. Believe it or not, there are also strange attackers lurking in the woods. They have already pursued my friend. I think that these soldiers in the woods must be hiding something, because if they don't get their prey, these strange attackers do. Furthermore, although i am not the leader here, i think that this blockade is crucial if we want to continue further into the dimension. I wish to speak to someone in charge about this."

Axe is in charge..... but if i'm controlling Axe....I guess that puts.... oh dear I'm in charge!? Tink had to stop himself from falling straight down and slowly glided back inside his tent. Once there his nerves burst and he fluttered frantically around the tent. "I'm in charge. I'm in charge. I'm in charge. I'm in charge."He repeated though he couldn't force himself to believe it. In retrospect he should have thought that impersonating the leader meant he would have have decisions but the idea was no less scary. He was a follower not a leader. And at that he knew nothing about making military decisions; he was a pacifist! Tink stopped his fluttering and landed on the table with his head in his hands. Oh dear he muttered again before looking up at the reality. It was every bit as inspiring as the real thing. I may not be a leader, but they expect him to be. "Oh I envy Dodge's acting right about now." he whimpered before collecting himself. The reality as if sensing Tink's decision finally got up from his spot and prepared to leave.

Axe burst through the tent flap and after counting to five followed. Ruya had started speaking now about how they should combat some kind of creature. Tink didn't yet feel that he could add anything to the dialogue so Tink had him stay back with his arms crossed. Tink flew up and settled on the top of Axe's tent, far enough not to be seen but close enough to hear most of what was being said.

Lust Asami Curtis


Lust lifted the bandages for a instant then covered them again. The scent of blood was heavy on the air. She looked at the lass who was now awake her face pale as she looked at the young male who wounded.

Cassidy Pyro SaintClaire


Cassidy had awoken with a start at the scent of blood. She had jumped up from her cot and it was then that she saw Ancel. Her face drained of it's color as she slowly stood up and walked to his side she took lust's hand and lifted them for a moment to see the wounds and the damage they inflicted and then recoiled and flinched away at the sight of them. The female then would put her hands back over the wound. Cassidy's anguish turned to rage and her eyes glowed orange to reflect this. She took Ancel's hand and rested her forehead on on them. "I'll find who did this to you. I will find them Ancel...this I promise...And I'll see you when I get back." She said making him know she knew he would survive this ordeal and with that she removed a necklace from her neck. The necklace was silver chain with 2 dragons circling a green stone. It was cool to the touch but when around certain people it would warm up a bit and glow different colors, engraved on one side of the stone was 7 letters which spelled out one word 'Courage' and on the other side 4 letters were engraved that spelled out 'Hope', and then on another side. The dragons were crafted from cold, with ruby red eyes and they held great detail in there design, there mouths were closed and at the top of the crystal the dragons necks were resting on each others shoulders like a hug. She put the necklace around his neck and with that she turned and walked away. She saw Kya and then she saw another being who looked like a bunny...no that's not it. A kangaroo? Yeah that's the animal with Tink, and beside him--- She shook her head telling herself they had a good reason for this horrible display. "Whatever your planning I want in." She said clearing not in the mood. Her eyes continued to glow and swirl about in a mix of anger and pain. "Where is Destin?" She asks them.

((OOC: No, it should be an Axe illusion. Tink hasn't even met Ancel to begin thinking of making an illusion of him. I don't know how it changed either. Typo perhaps? The names are similar.))
Dodge Hanson
Dodge nodded and turned around in search of the bag. "Med Kit, Med Kit." He muttered as his eyes scanned the tent. Gotcha he whispered as he spotted and took the kit from beside the unconscious dame. As his fingers wrapped around the strap, he noticed the girl stir slightly. She'll be up soon he thought before hastily bringing the bag to Lust's side. As soon as it was beside her she went to work mending the boys injuries. Dodge watched over her shoulder as she worked diligently worked. While Lust worked on healing this man, Dodge began to wonder what this man had done to get injured so bad. It wasn't like anything he had ever encountered.
"What was that?" Dodge asked after hearing Lust whisper something.

Tinkerton Puck
The illusion stood there mostly apathetic as the rest of them discussed. He turned to someone when they were speaking but other than that he was motionless. Tink shifted uneasily. The real Axe would have said something by now, something to at least shift conversation. He tried to speak out several times but as soon as he made up his mind to speak, someone else would take the chance.
"Now again, where is Destin and what is the plan?" Cassidy said. Tink jumped at the chance to get Axe into the conversation.
"I believe I can help you. Axe, Leader of the freedom fighters." Axe said as he walked to them. Instinctively Axe was about to raise his hand for a handshake but Tink mentally slapped it down. "Axe doesn't do that." he scolded. Tink continued.
"Now if we could just come this way to my tent, we can come up with a plan." Quieter he added. "Away from prying eyes." Personally Tink didn't mistrust any of the freedom fighters but he knew that was probably something that concerned leaders.

Dodge Hanson
Dodge nodded at her answer but otherwise remained unresponsive. It may have been selfish but he began to think of how this implemented him. This guy barely survived an encounter and he was older than Dodge. Not to mention better armed. Dodge shifted to the side to think until he saw another women come in. It was becoming too crowded in here for his liking. While Lust and the new girl started their conversation, Dodge moved out the tent doors.
Okay now I'll find Tink he thought ready to return to his origional task. He searched and quickly saw Tink lying atop Axe's tent. "Still around Axe I see." he murmered when he followed Tink's gaze to Axe. If it's an illusion that is. He couldn't really confront Tink about the illusion if it wasn't one. The amount of time he spent around Axe recently was peculiar but then again this illusion seemed more substantial than usual. He would stand and watch from here until he was sure.

Tinkerton Puck
Tink was taken back when the girl came and gave everyone orders. Would Axe have just taken orders from a stranger without question? He thought back to how Axe reacted when he brought Axe into the camp. He seemed fine after he learned she was one of the Chosen ones but then again, Cassidy didn't give any orders. Either way Tink had to be grateful that she had spoken up. After getting everyone into his tent he didn't have a plan.
Contrary to his nature he was second-guessing his order. She had told Axe to go and spread the word that they were going to win but perhaps it was too early to predict that. What was planned for tonight would be their first big act of rebellion. Before now it had been raids, sabotage or occasionally a battle but never anything this big. Reasons not to spread the word stacked up in his mind until he eventually decided that he'd ignore the order. The thought sent a shiver down his spine.

"So, i guess that girl's upstaged you, eh Axe?" came a booming voice. Tink turned and was surprised by the centaur. Not so much by the centaur in general, for he had encountered a few in his travels, but this was one he didn't know. Perhaps he doesn't belong here Tink tried but the playful smirk across it's face told a different story. I can't believe theres a entire being at the camp that I haven't helped at all. Calm down, maybe he only comes every now and then like Dodge. Still Tink had met Dodge swiftly after arriving. Also in the playful way that ths centaur said that suggested that he and Axe were close friends. Tink didn't have any idea that Axe friends beside himself. Axe had always seemed very solitary and stoic to him, not the type that made friends eaasily. Just how close were they then? If they were very close then surely he would see through the ruse as soon as Axe opened his mouth. Tink then wouldn't want to be the focus of the centaur's anger as he searched for his friend. But then if the were mere acquaintances the situation was less dire.
"She just kind of told you what to do. I would say that was very rude of her, but her plan was rather smart, so i have to give her SOME credit." the centaur said to fill in the silence. Perhaps he took Axe's silence as hurt pride?

"Yes it was. We're lucky to have such a good strategist with us." Urgh. Why did I say that. Saying "We're lucky to have such a good strategist with us" suggested that there wasn't already a good strategist here. Which in turn undermined Axe's own skills.
Think before you make other's speak, Tink.
"I might as well cook tonight, Axe, apparently rumor has it that Lust's been working on someone in her tent. Don't think she wants to cook after all she's been through."
"Oh really. Who?" Tink had started Axe to help with setting up while he pondered this rumor. They couldn't possibly be talking about Cassidy still, for she had left some time again. But if not Cassidy who else had Lust invited into his tent. It always annoyed him when people exploit his kindness because they knew he would do nothing about. Now was no exception and the annoyance soon faded.
"So, the choosen ones are finally here, huh?" he said, crossing his arms. "Finally. I think i actually recognize them all. The two men like somewhat familiar, the warrior woman i think was with me in the army, and i believe the yellow one was a dreamcatcher along with the nekos. Kya.......Anderson? I think that's her name. I don't know if...." Axe nodded as he continued with the work. Tink had to say that he was far more productive when he had a human sized body. It was almost enjoyable.
"Whoever has this should take much better care of it." Tink squinted hard to see the small object held in the centaur's hand. That must be the Sunlight stone Kya was talking about. If it really did feed on sunlight, then maybe it could be modified to feed on his own light.
"I remember seeing Kya drop that before she left. I should be able to get it back to her if you hand it to me." Axe said extending his hand to receive it. Tink's own hands clenched the tent in anticipation.
